Sanford Police Department Selects the “Best of the Best” to
Be Sanford’s School Resource Officers
In an effort to continue to connect the local public schools and its community of parents, students, teachers and caregivers, and in conjunction with the Seminole County School Board’s new initiative to have a police officer assigned to every public school in the County, the Sanford Police Department has selected its School Resource Officers (SRO) for the 2016-2017 school year. There will be one Police Officer assigned to each school. There are 11 Seminole County Public Schools located in Sanford ranging from Elementary, Middle and High School. (The City of Sanford has the largest number of schools in its jurisdiction).
The School Resource Officer is an integral position in the community. The Police Officer has the unique opportunity to become a familiar, friendly face, building and strengthening the relationship between student and officer during the school day, which furthers the Department’s best practice for seamless community engagement with the youngsters and their families of the Sanford community overall.
We look forward to being part of a productive and outstanding school year!
